Two MI Body Shops Shut Down After Tip Suggest Illegal Activity

Lee's Auto and D & S Auto are no longer in business after their licenses were summarily suspended, reported wbkb11.com.

A joint investigation between Michigan Department of State and local Michigan State Police began after a tip was dropped that illegal activity was taking place.

It was discovered that there were significant problems with record keeping after an inspection was completed by the Michigan Department of State at both dealerships.

Both dealers are prohibited from selling or buying auto parts at this time.

The Michigan State Police Alpena Post is working on a criminal investigation separate from the Michigan Department of State and will be presenting their findings to the Alpena County prosecutor, reported wbkb11.com.

Consumers who feel threatened, suspect fraud, etc., are encouraged to file a complaint with the Secretary of State's Office and they will be sure to take licensing action if warranted.
